Since 1100 BC, people from the region Andalusia started to produce their own wine. This interest in wine arose when the Greeks introduced them 2.500 years ago to the special beverage made from grapes. During this time a lot of wine was generated from Andalusia and exported to Europe. Their wine was a success. The reason behind this is their top quality and origin of sherry which was very popular among the English people.
Until this day, the production of wine is still executed with a lot of passion. Do you know that almost every province in Andalusia grows grapes? This leads to over 40.000 hectares of vineyards in Andalusia! Their passion results in a continuous production of high quality wines. Do you want to purchase such a wine?
